EDF rules... :)

I remember Nem3's F22. He did a pretty good job with it but scaling up will take a bit of work to make everything fit right.
Nice work, looking forward to more of the build.

Cheers,

AirX,

Yes indeed, scaling up from 70mm for 90mm has advantages and disadvantages... in 90mm EDF we have more space for electronics, great ratio in wing area and so on, but the cost rises exponentially..... by the way, anyone could be my sponsor? kkkk

Cheers

Thanks Lt599 and Shung!

One more update, more fuselage balsa covering.
Itens arriving on this week: electric retracts, electric brakes, 4 servos for vector thrust system, and probably two 12 blades EDF cases.

Cheers
